San Diego

Having come to the conclusion that San Diego will be my goal for living in the future, I realize that I have given myself time to prepare for such a trip, or journey, depending on the outlook. Moving forward, planning what needs to take place will be easy but somewhat challenging, though starting will be the hardest. A foundation must be laid of course in order to have something to build upon. What will be my cornerstone?

Though California has a lot to offer as a state, San Diego as a city and a county has it’s own stuff to offer within itself. Being a city alone with various cultures, ideas, and many “types” among many other things, that’s what it gives as a city among an ocean of gems.

I am thinking of starting at mission beach, though downtown San Diego would have a better option of resource. A beach doesn’t really seem like a good spot to really start a life, but with the intention of starting things off right, a sight of a beginning where I was first introduced to San Diego years before I went to boot camp for the Marine Corps.

Which brings to the second destination, the airport. The one thing that I could see from the window of the barracks that my platoon shared with many others. Many times, looking out the window, I would think how easy it would be to just go down the stairs, jump the fence, and just sneak on somehow on an aircraft heading anywhere. Getting onto the aircraft wasn’t important, being it through the wheel well or somehow something similar. But, in one way, I was looking at my future because the MOS I had chosen was Aviation Electronics. The style of aircraft wasn’t on any fixed wing but on a helicopter by Sikorsky called an CH-53D, a helicopter that has been decommissioned for a while now.

Planning with a good foundation would be good but without a cornerstone, it would be pointless. So in starting with this, I am sure it will be a good year till I make it to my destination.

The Three Places

The three places that have been on my mind lately have been Miami, Phoenix, and San Diego. Though in my mind I enjoy winter and what comes with it, the physical attraction to a warm place has started to become something unavoidable. At some point in the future, I would like to move to one of the formerly mentioned places.

What the attraction is, that I have been to two ( San Diego and Phoenix) but have always wanted to go to one (Miami) to experience what it had to offer like the other two. In San Diego, the attraction that draws me is Mission Beach, though that may be because it is the few things that stays constant of what I remember about San Diego. As for Phoenix, just the thought of exploring more of what it is apart from the airport and hotels, getting to know what it is on a deeper level. Miami holds the most to what explorative nature there is to see. As never having been there but hearing about it has made it a bit bigger than what it may actually be.

Though I know that all things, places, and people hold a good and bad side, the calling to see what it is to develop my own opinion gets greater and greater. It may be at least a year before I am even able to consider such a move, the challenge has been set in my mind. Calling from the shadows, whispers to me in my dreams. Futures aren’t set in stone and shift like the sand.

The trip to any three would be great to take video of, with the bus rides and the waiting in bus terminals. Greyhound has become my best option at this point. Only question to be asked, what should I do once I get down there? A job at any three would be the first choice. After that, what ever offers itself to be explored.

CROW KILLS

Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu. The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts. 

However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus car kills.

The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause: when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger. They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "Truck." Absolutely amazing!

Boatlift On 9/11





Boatlift on 9/11...Unbelievable

Narrated by Tom Hanks

We certainly were busy watching the news right after 9/11, but never saw this......BOATLIFT OF 9/11. You know, in the 11 years since this happened, this is the first time I've ever seen this...I don't even remember seeing/hearing about this evacuation on the news! And the fact it was all done in 9 hours...500,000 people! This is a video well worth watching. The guy at the end (same guy who is at the beginning) has some great words to live by for all of us. Watch till the end, you won't regret it.

The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner

Here's a little fact for automotive buffs or just to dazzle your friends.

The four
Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram and Max, invented
and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.

The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.

Henry was curious and invited them into his office.

They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car. They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.

The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner', on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords.

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.

And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show --
Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.

The Marine's Prayer

The Marine's Prayer

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(excerpt from Warrior Culture of the U.S. Marines, copyright 2001 Marion F. Sturkey) 

Regardless of the situation, the Marine Corps has an answer for almost everything.

Contact with The Deity is serious business. It is also an excellent idea for Warriors who are expected to put their lives on the line against an assortment of foes. For U.S. Marines of any faith who may desire guidance when contacting their Maker, the Marine Corps has a ready aid, The Marine's Prayer
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, 
make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. 
 Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty
 in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, 
my loved ones, and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family.

Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to 
accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. 
 Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. 
 Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to
 the duties my Country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. 
Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, 
and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold.

If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; 
if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; 
if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.

Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom 
by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.

How the Senate Works - A Must Read

This is a MUST read…..

Do you suppose Congress really knows how absolutely disgusted we
are with their performance – a lot less that 10% in my opinion

WHAT A MESS~~WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE !!!!

Please watch at least the first 45 seconds……then you will be hooked! Isn't it about time there were some serious and basic changes made in the way our Congress works? Interesting four minute speech. No wonder this country is in such a big mess. Our law makers have no idea what they are voting on. How the Senate Really Works. Unbelievable! I don't care what your party is!
Every American should see this video.

Oklahoma update

Date: May 21, 2013



This info came from a brother who is also an amateur radio operator (ham) in Texas. He operates an emergency net on the amateur frequencies daily.





Brothers and Sisters,



I have heard from three brothers and sisters in the Oklahoma City area

in the past 15 minutes.



Unofficial preliminary information is that no brothers or sisters were

killed. However, we still don't have all the information from the

elementary school in Moore where they are still searching and don't know

if any JW children attended there.



Reportedly, four brothers lost their homes. Not sure whether that was

in Shawnee, Moore, or a combination.



One brother who lives 15 miles west of Moore said it is far different

from watching the news. This time it's real, and driving by the area is

surreal. This time it's neighbors and real people who could be you.



Another brother who lives northwest of Oklahoma City confirmed there

were four homes lost. The KH in Moore is south of the tornado's path and

is intact. One family lived in the neighborhood that was destroyed. They

barely got out in time. Some of our Vietnamese brothers survived in a

shelter. One family of four witnesses lived in the area hardest hit and

lost everything, but they were in a shelter and are safe.



I will pass on to you any further information I receive. Please let me

know if you hear any factual info.



Warm regards,



Charlie

21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature. 

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only those who know you well, know that you aren't.

You'll Love this Brain Transplant

In the hospital where a family member lay gravely ill, the relatives gathered in the waiting room. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

"I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces. "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the only hope.. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the BRAIN."

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a time, someone asked, "How much will a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a Democrat's brain; $200 for a Republican's brain."

The moment turned awkward. Some of the Democrats actually had to try not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the Republicans. A man unable to control his curiosity, finally blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the Democrat's brain so much more than a Republican's brain?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to price the Republicans' brains a lot lower because they're used."


SEND THIS TO A SMART Republican WHO NEEDS A LAUGH, AND TO ANY Democrat WHOM YOU THINK CAN HANDLE IT!

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."
Henry Ford

Man Who Was A Catholic Priest - What An Experience

This is an experience related at an assembly:

Valdir was born in Portugal. When he was younger his family moved to
Brazil. He was 12 years old, when his father died, and a year later his
mother remarried. Valdir did not accept that someone would take the place of
his father. Conflicts arose between Valdir, his stepfather, and his mother.
After a discussion that irritated the nerves, he decided to leave home. A
short time later, the rest of the family decided to return to Portugal.
Valdir was only 13 years old when he separated from the family.
He decided to become a priest. He began his studies in a seminary and
graduated in theology and became a priest. Due to his position, they sent
him to the Vatican in Rome to work and to continue his studies there. During
that time he was sent to 80 different countries and learned to read and
write 6 different languages. He worked with Paul IV and John Paul II. Also,
he took their classes, and knew them in private. He also had lots of contact
with the Pope at present, Benedict XVI. He was highly respected in the
church and was sent to different countries to investigate and solve problems
within the church.
He has also composed religious music. At least two of these compositions
are well known all over the world and famous Brazilian priests sing these.
At least 2 million copies have been sold.
In the mid-90's, he was sent to Sao Paulo in Brazil. A short time later
he was going to be consecrated (named as bishop). But in that time he
started to feel disappointed by the abuse of power and the partiality that
existed within the church; for that reason he decided to demit his position.
A year later, he received a message from the Vatican where he was informed
that he should become bishop so that he could advance to later become
archbishop and cardinal. But, he rejected it again. He was also informed
that a priest with such a high education as his could not stay in a large
city without having to take on more responsibility. He had to move to a
smaller city. He chose a city that was in a very Catholic region close to
the city of Tatui. He had the desire to do social work. (This area belongs
to the West Tatui
congregation.)
In the 80's Valdir was sent by the church for a year to the United
States. His mission was to study the more influential churches in that
country. It was then that for the first time he received information about
the Witnesses. Even though the truths he learned did not please him, he was
convinced that only the Jehovah's Witnesses fulfilled the mandate of
preaching the gospel publicly and from house to house, even though people
made fun of, repudiated, and rejected them ferociously.
After some time, he received a visit from a brother that was preaching
from house to house. The brother left him a pair of magazines. After having
read them, Valdir used them as material for his next sermon and cited the
source material. Some of those present reacted negatively, and the church's
headquarters in Sao Paulo was informed. Valdir received a reprimand but was
not intimidated, and continued to have the brothers visit him. He also
continued to read and use the magazines in his sermons.
A pioneer brother that had gone to MTS started to study with Valdir. Even
though he experienced a lot of opposition (verbal, and psychological, and
was attacked several times) he continued to study.
Valdir solicited a discharge in the church and started to frequent the
meetings. His prior friends came to be his enemies and they tried to cause
him damage. To hinder his search for a job, they started to lie about him.
They even tried to convince a person in the congregation to accuse him of
committing a crime. This person negated, and told Valdir what they were
doing.
As an unbaptized publisher, he had an average of 70 hours monthly in the
field service. In July of 2005 he expressed his desire to be baptized, but
he was advised to wait some time. In January of 2006 he was approved for
baptism at the assembly that would be held in February in the Tel assembly
locale. When he was approved for baptism (a month before the baptism) he
felt that he needed to reconcile with his family, for which he had not seen
in 31 years. He thought that a true Christian had to preach the truth to his
family.
During all the years he had contact with the consulate to renew his
permit of residency in Brazil, there was always a greeting from his family
and a telephone number so he could get in contact with them, but Valdir
never called them. Now he wanted to call his mother. But when he heard her
voice, he failed to speak and just cried and had to hang up. After a few
minutes he called her again.

This next dialogue is what happened next:
Mother: How are you, my son?
Valdir: Thanks to Jehovah, I'm doing good now.
Mother: What name have you used? You speak of Jehovah?
Valdir: Yes. I am no longer priest in the Catholic church. I am a Jehovah's
Witnesses, and I have a lot to tell you.
Mother: My son. All of the family, including me, your stepfather, and your
siblings are Jehovah's Witnesses for years now. It is because of that that
we tried to reestablish contact with you.

For a few minutes, they couldn't speak, just cry. Valdir was informed
that one of his brothers serves as an elder. His stepfather, his mother,
and one of his brothers is baptized. He still hasn't decided if he will stay
in Brazil, or move back to Portugal.

This experience was related by Georg and Mona Green, missionaries in Tel,
Brazil. They are in the same congregation as Valdir.

Who Says Men Can't Remember Dates‏

Men do remember

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.
'What's the matter, dear?' she whispers as she steps into the room, 'Why are you down here at this time of night?

The husband looks up from his coffee, 'It's the 20th Anniversary of the day we met.'
She can't believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.
The husband continues, 'Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only 16,' he says solemnly.

Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. 'Yes, I do' she replies.
The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily. 'Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?'
'Yes, I remember' said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.
The husband continued. 'Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years?'
'I remember that, too' she replied softly.
He wiped another tear from his cheek and said 'I would have gotten out today.

An Urgent Update from the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) – Brussels
Rome:
In a statement to Reuters today, Vatican officials announced that Joseph Ratzinger will remain a permanent resident of Vatican City after his resignation. Doing so will offer him legal protection from any attempt to prosecute him in connection with sexual abuse cases around the world, Church sources said today
"His continued presence in the Vatican is necessary, otherwise he might be defenseless".
This startling admission of guilt by the church is also a direct obstruction of justice, and lends more weight to the charge by the ITCCS and others that the Vatican has arranged with the Italian government to shield Ratzinger from criminal prosecution, in violation of international laws ratified by Italy.
Commentary:
The Vatican decided today to give permanent sanctuary to a proven war criminal by allowing Joseph Ratzinger to obstruct justice and evade prosecution for crimes against humanity. And the government of Italy is colluding in this abrogation of international law.
This decision validates our claims about the criminal conspiracy surrounding Ratzinger and his Vatican co-conspirators. It also makes it clear that the Vatican is a rogue power that is flaunting every law to conceal its own criminality.
In response, the ITCCS calls upon its affiliates and all people of conscience to use our upcoming Easter Reclamation Campaign to converge on Rome and the Vatican to force the extradition of Ratzinger from Vatican City, and place him and his accessories on trial for crimes against humanity.
Commencing Sunday, March 24, 2013, our activists and others will begin an escalating series of Catholic church occupations and seizures of church property to bring about Ratzinger's extradition and reclaim stolen wealth from the criminal corporation known as Vatican Inc. – in the name of the legion of their victims, both living and dead.
.. and from Kevin Annett – The Rat Scurries Back to Vat!
Those whom the gods destroy, they first drive insane. Especially, it seems, in Rome.
Why would the oldest and wealthiest institution on our planet deliberately prove what its critics say about it, by first tossing their leader, a proven crook, out of his office after he's threatened with arrest, and then giving him shelter to avoid prosecution? That's the kind of panic and illogic displayed by a junior document-shredder, not a credible or wise body of men.
And that gives all of us hope.
Rome's incredible admission that they can't have the Pope stand trial has strengthened our cause and legitimacy enormously, proving that no matter how big is your guilty opponent, provoking him for long enough will cause him to destroy himself by his own fear and stupidity.
Protecting Ratzinger within the walls of the Vatican may halt justice for a moment, but it violates a basic rule of warfare, which is to never give your enemy a permanent focus for their attack. Ratzinger, the evil Emperor, now a permanent fixture in the Vatican? The absurdity of offering such an ongoing focus to the civilized world's hatred of catholic criminality is also a sign that the church is adrift and improvising. But it also shows how genuinely worried is the Vtaican about the legal offensive mounted by our affiliates, lawyers for torture survivors, and the International Criminal Court.
The Vatican is pulling out all stops to keep Ratzinger out of court. Their loyal, one-man owned Italian media is assaulting the crap out of yours truly and our ITCCS these days, playing the "Deny, Distract and Discredit" strategy of any damage-controlling corporation.
Tottering Liz Windsor, aka Queen of England, is making a special and unprecedented trip to Rome on March 6 to kiss the ring, or other parts, of the new CEO of Vatican Inc. And Italian President Napolitano is meeting with President Obama today in Washington to undoubtedly line up more American backing for the Pontiff – not that Obama needs much encouraging, having stood loyally behind Ratzinger's claim of "diplomatic immunity".
But all to no avail, ultimately. When the Bloody Emperor stands naked, only our illusions keeps him protected and immune from the final accounting that is coming.
The tornado that followed my first exorcism outside the Vatican in 2009, and the lightning that struck it on the day of Benedict's resignation, were not accidental. Joe Ratzinger should know from the history of his own former SS buddies that criminal institutions can run, but they can't hide – even behind all the wealth and pomp in the world.

Diplomatic Note was issued to Vatican just prior to his resignation
New Pope and Catholic clergy face indictment and arrest as "Easter Reclamation" plan continues
A Global Media Release and Statement from The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State


Brussels:
The historically unprecedented resignation of Joseph Ratzinger as Pope this week was compelled by an upcoming action by a European government to issue an arrest warrant against Ratzinger and a public lien against Vatican property and assets by Easter.
The ITCCS Central Office in Brussels is compelled by Pope Benedict's sudden abdication to disclose the following details:
1. On Friday, February 1, 2013, on the basis of evidence supplied by our affiliated Common Law Court of Justice (itccs.org), our Office concluded an agreement with representatives of a European nation and its courts to secure an arrest warrant against Joseph Ratzinger, aka Pope Benedict, for crimes against humanity and ordering a criminal conspiracy.
2. This arrest warrant was to be delivered to the office of the "Holy See" in Rome on Friday, February 15, 2013. It allowed the nation in question to detain Ratzinger as a suspect in a crime if he entered its sovereign territory.
3. A diplomatic note was issued by the said nation's government to the Vatican's Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, on Monday, February 4, 2013, informing Bertone of the impending arrest warrant and inviting his office to comply. No reply to this note was received from Cardinal Bertone or his office; but six days later, Pope Benedict resigned.
4. The agreement between our Tribunal and the said nation included a second provision to issue a commercial lien through that nation's courts against the property and wealth of the Roman Catholic church commencing on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013. This lien was to be accompanied by a public and global "Easter Reclamation Campaign" whereby Catholic church property was to be occupied and claimed by citizens as public assets forfeited under international law and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
5. It is the decision of our Tribunal and the said nation's government to proceed with the arrest of Joseph Ratzinger upon his vacating the office of the Roman Pontiff on a charge of crimes against humanity and criminal conspiracy.
6. It is our further decision to proceed as well with the indictment and arrest of Joseph Ratzinger's successor as Pope on the same charges; and to enforce the commercial lien and "Easter Reclamation Campaign" against the Roman Catholic church, as planned.
In closing, our Tribunal acknowledges that Pope Benedict's complicity in criminal activities of the Vatican Bank (IOR) was compelling his eventual dismissal by the highest officials of the Vatican. But according to our sources, Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone forced Joseph Ratzinger's resignation immediately, and in direct response to the diplomatic note concerning the arrest warrant that was issued to him by the said nation's government on February 4, 2013.
We call upon all citizens and governments to assist our efforts to legally and directly disestablish the Vatican, Inc. and arrest its chief officers and clergy who are complicit in crimes against humanity and the ongoing criminal conspiracy to aid and protect child torture and trafficking.
Further bulletins on the events of the Easter Reclamation Campaign will be issued by our Office this week.

The Lesson At The End

WHAT CAUSES ARTHRITIS?

A drunk man who smelled of beer sat down on a subway next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading.

After a few minutes the man turned to
the priest and asked, "Say Father, what causes arthritis?"

The priest replies, "My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, contempt for your fellow man, sleeping around with prostitutes, and lack of a bath."

The drunk muttered in response, "Well, I'll be ...”, Then returned to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm
very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?"

The drunk answered, "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."

MORAL: Make sure you understand the question before offering the answer.

A Pig Story

A farmer had five female pigs. Times were hard, so he decided to take them to the county fair and sell them. At the fair, he met another farmer who owned five male pigs. After talking a bit, they decided to mate the pigs and split everything 50/50.

The farmers lived sixty miles apart. So they agreed to drive thirty miles each to a field in which the pigs could mate. The first morning, the farmer with the female pigs got up at 5 A.M., loaded the pigs into the family station wagon, which was the only vehicle he had, and drove the thirty miles.

While the pigs were mating, he asked the other farmer, "How will I know if they are pregnant?" The other farmer replied, "If they're lying in the grass in the morning, they're pregnant. If they're in the mud, they're not."

The next morning the pigs were rolling in the mud. So he hosed them off, loaded them into the station wagon again and proceeded to try again. This continued each morning for more than a week and the farmers were about worn out.

About two weeks later the farmer with the female pigs was too tired to get out of bed. He said to his wife, "Honey, please go look outside and tell me whether the pigs are in the mud or in the grass." "Neither," replied his wife, "they're all in the station wagon and one of them is honking the horn.”

A couple books I find interesting 1

A Little History Lesson

This is quite interesting. You've probably heard most of it at one time or another, but it's still interesting to read it all again together.

Where did "piss poor" come from?

If you're young and hip, this is still interesting.
Us older people need to learn something new every day...

Just to keep the grey matter tuned up.

Where did "Piss Poor" come from? Interesting history.

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot.

And then once it was full it was taken and sold to the tannery...

if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor".

But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot...

They "didn't have a pot to piss in" and were the lowest of the low.

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature

Isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

Here are some facts about the 1500's

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May,

And they still smelled pretty good by June. However, since they were starting to smell,
brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body oder.

Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water.

The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water,

Then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children.

Last of all the babies.

By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. 
Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water!"

Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath.

It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals

(mice, bugs) lived in the roof.

When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof.

Hence the saying, "It's raining cats and dogs."

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.

This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your

nice clean bed.

Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection.

That's how canopy beds came into existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt.

Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery; in the

winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing.

As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door,

It would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way.

Hence: a thresh hold.

(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while.

Hence the rhyme:

Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old."
Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special.

When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off.

It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon."

They would cut off a little to share with guests

And would all sit around and chew the fat.

Those with money had plates made of pewter.

Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead

poisoning death.

This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were

considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status.

Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or

the upper crust.

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey.

The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days.

Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.
They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather

around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up.
Hence the custom; "holding a wake."

England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people.

So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave.

When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the

inside and they realized they had ben burying people alive.
So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through

the ground and tie it to a bell.

Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift) to listen for the

bell; thus, someone could be, "saved by the bell" or was "considered a dead ringer."

And that's the truth.

Now, whoever said history was boring!!!

So get out there and educate someone!
Share these facts with a friend.
